Annual Holiday Event: Update #1 Still Time to Make a Donation. Get a Free Book

Thanks you everybody for your support and donations to the Minwaashin Lodge. We are now over $1,000 in contributions and there’s still time to support a worthy community cause.

It’s simple to participate. Make a donation to the Minwaashin Lodge in Ottawa and we’ll send you a limited edition copy of The Christmas Beaver.

Minwaashin Lodge is a healing centre in Ottawa that provides a range of programs and services to First Nations, Inuit and Metis women and children who are survivors of domestic and other forms of violence, and who may also be suffering the effects of the residential school system.

The mission of Minwaashin Lodge is to provide wholistic programs and services for grandmothers, women, children and youth impacted by family violence and residential schooling. All programs and services are provided in the context of cultural beliefs and values as part of the healing journey.

Here’s how you can participate.

If you make a donation, I will send you a copy of The Christmas Beaver. Not in stores and only available by order from Ottawa Press and Publishing. And only until Christmas.

The Christmas Beaver is a children’s book. But for children of all ages who believe in the magic of Christmas.
